Not everything a writer writes is meant for mass consumption. We all have our guilty pleasures, our bits of fun, our mental exercises, or just writing something for a friend.
I don't mind sharing some of these things, if only because some readers might get a kick out of seeing a writer's less-polished side...or maybe just because, "Hey, free stuff!"
The Mossfoot Marauders - This story was written while I was playing a space sim game called X3: Reunion. A young man who dreams of flying his own spaceship gets his wish, but is it really what he wants? And at what cost?
Mossfoot's-Tales-of-Woe - Funny how I keep using that name. For a different game called Elite and its sequels. A spoiled navy brat who had everything his way gets shot down and left for dead. Revived, but broke, he tries to make a new life for himself among the stars, not realizing that someone out there wants to finish the job.
Mossfoots-Continuing-Tales-of-Woe - Just when he thought everything was going his way, Mossfoot ends up dead...again. Revived over a hundred and fifty
years later, it's both a very familiar and very different universe he's come into. But something seems to be missing, or more accurately, someone.
Violets-Tales-of-Whoa - With Mossfoot gone it's up to Violet to keep his memory, and body, alive. After all, it's her home now. But as she explores the galaxy and competes in virtual dogfighting tournaments, it turns out some people from the past are looking for her, and she might not like the reasons why.
Elite: Lost Souls - I've written a novel for the ED universe with an eye on publication. Therefore I'm currently not making it public. If my attempts at licencing go nowhere, then you can probably expect to see it here, along with my tears and broken heart. 😉
The Back Bacon Express - A short story I wrote that takes place after Elite: Lost Souls for fun. If you haven't read Lost Souls yet, it's been written in a way that should still stand on its own.
